On Tuesday, 29 May 2018, the plenary of the European Parliament adopted with a large majority the Revision of the Posted Workers Directive (PWD) after more than two years of negotiations.
It will bring improvements regarding payment for posted workers, their legal entitlements regarding accommodation, subsistence and travel and legal certainty for the “bogus” self-employed.
SOLIDAR welcomes the agreement as a step towards a more social Europe and a fairer European labour market. Such actions at European level are urgently needed to show our citizens that Europe does care about their working and living conditions and not only about competitiveness in the internal market.

In the framework of the EaSI-funded project ‘Protecting Mobility through Improving Labour Rights Enforcement in Europe’, that aims to enhance administrative cooperation and information sharing between relevant stakeholders engaged with the posting of workers, a series of policy briefings is being developed looking more closely at certain issues related to Posting.
The first set of papers and country studies has been published recently:
A conference “ENHANCING ECONOMIC DEMOCRACY FOR POSTED WORKERS” will be organised on 14 and 15 June in Padova.
